Al-Ma'mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Israel

Artists-in-residence at Al Ma'mal aren't tucked away in their studios; they're encouraged to work with others throughout the city of Jerusalem. They're given plenty of opportunities to engage with the public and also lead workshops with local young artists, helping them get in touch with their creative sides.

The foundation organizes film screenings, artists' talks, public readings and performances to raise public awareness and understanding of contemporary art.
